"​In a 2015 study, researcher Paul Piff of the University of California, Irvine, found that people who spent 60 seconds looking up at towering trees were more likely to report feeling awe, after which they were more likely to help a stranger than people who looked at an equally tall—but far less awe-inspiring—building."

Good to know I am not alone in that perception. I often wonder what causes the difference.L

I agree but I have to say- when this back woods guy goes to NYC, every few decades, I'm in awe looking at those sky scrapers- though I'm not more likely to help a stranger because of it, especially in the Big City.
